Best Books for New Traders

A P
The list author says: "I've been actively trading options for three years, and stocks for around ten. These books have been an immense help to me in improving my trading."
Enhancing Trader Performance: Proven Strategies From the Cutting Edge of Trading Psychology
Enhancing Trader Performance: Proven Strategies From the Cutting Edge of Trading Psychology
"Probably the best single book I've read about the art of trading.  If you want to know why 80-90% of traders loser money or fail at trading, read this book.  I read the Kindle version."
The Daily Trading Coach: 101 Lessons for Becoming Your Own Trading Psychologist
The Daily Trading Coach: 101 Lessons for Becoming Your Own Trading Psychologist
"Another great book by Brett Steenbarger.  The content is fairly similar to that of Enhancing Trader Performance, but it's broken down into smaller "lessons" on how to essentially become your own trading coach."
The Bible of Options Strategies: The Definitive Guide for Practical Trading Strategies
The Bible of Options Strategies: The Definitive Guide for Practical Trading Strategies
"A great encyclopedia/reference material for beginning options traders, with clear explanations on how to select, enter and exit options positions, along with a full explanation of how the position works.  Positions are categorized according to how risky they are, as well as whether it is a bullish, bearish, or market-neutral position."
Trading Options at Expiration: Strategies and Models for Winning the Endgame
Trading Options at Expiration: Strategies and Models for Winning the Endgame
"A book for daytraders, but even long term position or swing traders will learn a lot from this book.  If you want to really know how options work/behave, read this book."
The Volatility Edge in Options Trading: New Technical Strategies for Investing in Unstable Markets
The Volatility Edge in Options Trading: New Technical Strategies for Investing in Unstable Markets
"Much of the content of this book will be over the head of anyone who doesn't have a good understanding of the greeks and how options work.  But if you want a very thorough understanding of how options and the greeks work, read this book.  However, duplicating most of the trades in the book requires an account over $25,000 in your trading account in order to comply with daytrading rules."
Trading in the Zone: Master the Market with Confidence, Discipline and a Winning Attitude
Trading in the Zone: Master the Market with Confidence, Discipline and a Winning Attitude
"A classic, and a must for anyone who wants to learn how to trade more profitably and consistently.  Read this and you'll see why 90% (or more) of success in trading is mental.  I read the Kindle version."
Reminiscences of a Stock Operator
Reminiscences of a Stock Operator
"Another classic on the art of trading.  Read this and you'll see how little has changed in the markets since this book was written in 1923.  You'll also see why folks who claim "this time it's different" in terms of markets are always wrong."
